    Return to Maui

    Overall, still a great place to stay, although renovations are still underway. Staff is friendly and helpful. The room was smaller than on previous stays, so looking forward to reopening and the new premium rooms.

    Not worth the money

    Hotel is super outdated and smelled terrible. Bathrooms super old and are in desperate need for updating. No elevator and filthy carpets. Beautiful beach out front and friendly staff is all it has going for it.

    Family Staycation

    Walked in and was able to get a room last minute. Kids enjoyed pool and closeness to the beach. Early morning risers show special - whales, whales, whales with the ocean calm and flat awesome experience.

    Great time to visit KBH

    Kā‘anapali Beach Hotel is such an amazing value compared to other properties in the area. It's extremely close to the water, rooms are nice, and staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Can't wait to return and see the new rooms!

    Authentic Hawaiian experience!

    It is easy to see why this hotel is voted the most Hawaiian hotel. Many cultural experiences are offered, including hula & ukulele lessons, lei making classes, etc. The location is the best. The hotel is undergoing an extensive renovation and adding a sailing academy. Love this hotel!
